It is not only the first 5G phone in the company's A series, it is also the first to support DeX in the lineup. Samsung DeX allows users to connect their phone to a PC monitor or TV to expand the phone's experience to a bigger screen. As per the information available right now, there doesn't seem to be a 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy A90.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G sports an unusual design on the back with gradient finish on the top half and regular colour on the bottom half in the White variant and the opposite in the Black version. There are also different coloured stripes running on the side in both variants.
According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G will carry a starting price tag of KRW 900,000 (roughly Rs. 53,100) in the company's home market where it goes on sale beginning tomorrow.
